General Description

The first four miles of this road, from Tincup to Mirror Lake, are usually passable by two-wheel drive vehicles. Beyond the lake the road becomes a lesser used four-wheel drive road with high-clearance recommended. After the lake, the road follows East Willow Creek for a mile then climbs rapidly to the pass. The condition of the road near the pass is variable, and anyone using it should check with the National Forest office before using.

Directions from Almont: Travel twenty one miles east on the Taylor River Road. Then go seven miles south to Tincup on the Cumberland Pass Road. Mirror Lake Road, Forest Road 267, leads east from Tincup.
